Ryan Flores, who lives in Brooklyn, largely works in the medium of ceramics, exploring how colorful, glazed forms attract the eye as they play with expectations. His three installations in the vitrines of 45 Rockefeller Plaza create beguiling environments, in which intricate mosaic surfaces hold ceramic vessels, lilies, fruits and other objects, suggesting luxurious, archaeological or even devotional finds.

Flores’s art will also be on display through large-scale images of his pieces, which are photographed individually against backgrounds of alternating colors. The photos can be seen inside the Concourse and in other locations around Rockefeller Plaza.
